Staffing company puts expansion plans on hold amid oil downturn

It appears Houston's energy downturn has begun to reach the businesses that feed off it to survive. For a while now, we've heard about job cut after job cut from some of Houston's biggest energy, oilfield service and exploration companies, but it seemed that other businesses were doing okay. Technology companies still thrive as the energy sector looks for ways to make their projects more cost efficient, and M&A attorneys have been circling the waters for the next company a client can gobble up.

What health care CEOs really think about hospital quality

Woosnam survives aching back, playoff to win Insperity

Neither bad back nor playoff can keep Woosnam from a win Welshman beats Perry, Lehman for first victory on senior tour THE WOODLANDS - Ian Woosnam went with what worked the last time his back hurt between rounds: some anti-inflammatory meds and a few sips of sake. On Sunday, Woosnam, with a slight bend in his less painful back, sank a 30-foot birdie putt to defeat Kenny Perry and Tom Lehman on the first playoff hole to win the Insperity Invitational. Lehman's 3-under round included six birdies and three bogeys. Perry blazed his way into the playoff by making birdie on four of his final six holes. Like when he was younger, when he won 29 European Tour titles and two PGA Tour events, including the 1991 Masters.

Homecourt advantage means nothing unless Rockets maintain intensity

? ? ? The Rockets swept their three home games in the first round and knocked off the Clippers in their most recent meeting in Houston. But they said they cannot count on homecourt advantage, saying they will need to maintain the intensity they had inconsistently in the first round. ?That?s what we played for all season,? Rockets guard Jason Terry said. ?That definitely doesn?t guarantee you anything other than you open at home, in front of your fans. ?We got to come out with the necessary energy it?s going to take playing against a good, tough team that is coming out of a series their energy was high.

Pablo Prigioni also has experienced his share on the basketball court ? an Olympic medal, world championships, tough matchups, making adjustments.

Their wisdom, experience and veteran leadership helped the Rockets mature this season. As the team prepares to host the Clippers on Monday in Game 1 of the Western [...]

How to Win 1,000,000 Tootsie Rolls – This Forgotten Day in Houston

May 4, 1975: On this day, Astros? first baseman Bob Watson achieved something that only one person could and will ever achieve in the history of Major League Baseball. He scored the game?s one millionth run. Some unusual things happened that led to Watson being in the right place at the one millionth time. For one, the Astros were playing in the first game of a doubleheader after a rare rain out in San Francisco. All across the country at Major League ballparks, scoreboards made fans and players aware that the league was just ten runs away from one million, and when Watson stepped to the plate to lead off [...]

Houston natives escape Nepal shaken, grateful

The three were hiking in a single-file line: sister, friend and then the older brother. For two hours, they worried about their kids, fueled by news articles and photos. After making the decision to abort their hike and return to Lukla, they passed village after village of destruction, sleeping outside in tents at night, alert for aftershocks both real and conjured out of memories. For five days, guide company promises to get plane seats fell through, they felt manipulated and alone, and eventually, the Silbermans learned to pay a little extra to secure a spot out. In Houston, their parents contacted every government branch they could think of: the embassy, Senator Ted Cruz, the State Department and received no word back.

Pasadena High student remembered as encouraging, funny basketball fanatic

Eric Medina Jr. liked to tell Julian Cruz he was going to take his spot on the varsity basketball team if Cruz didn't work hard enough. Medina, a 16-year-old junior varsity basketball player at Pasadena High School who died suddenly during a P.E. class Friday, was remembered as the "team comedian" who spent much of his time practicing his three-pointer and pushing friends to "never give up." "Memories like that make you never want to give up," Cruz said Sunday evening at a vigil for Medina, who collapsed Friday on the high school track and died later that day. Medina was determined to go to college out of state - he would have been the first in his family to earn a degree - and return to Pasadena to coach basketball, the sport that was his passion. Before the song, Lorena Saecedo said one of the last times she picked Medina, who she called her "little giant," up from school, she watched him goofing off with friends before he got in the car and told her about how he was set on going to a college out of Texas.

Humble ISD snags top honors at H-E-B awards

Houston-area school districts cleaned up Sunday at the 14th annual H-E-B Excellence in Education Awards in Austin, winning honors for best large school district, best secondary principal and top secondary teacher, among other categories. H-E-B CEO Charles Butt handed out $430,000 in awards and grants during the ceremony, including $100,000 to the Humble ISD, which was named top large school district. Test scores and attendance were also on the slide there, prompting Humble ISD to launch Camp Nobis Est, a summer program that teaches incoming sixth-graders about work ethic, goal setting, teamwork and other skills. Larry Berger, principal of Pearland High School, won top honors among secondary school leaders, which comes with $10,000 for Berger and $25,000 for the school.
